answered. >> schieffer: the part that interests me, do we think-- does anybody have a suggestion that this had anything to do with anything besides what this extramarital affair? was somebody upset with general petraeus about what happened in benghazi? i think lindsey graham is right when he says we need to have an victories glowft of this incident but of this whole business, peggy. >> this is one of those what the heck is going on kind of moments where you have so many questions, as many people are saying off the record. this feels a little homeland, almost. you know what i mean? it's a little too mysterious. look, i come back to where i started. petraeus is a great guy. he has sacrificed for his country for 40 years. it is a shame to lose him over this. and i just have to ask why do we have to lose him over this? that actually makes no sense. >> schieffer: so do you think they moved too fast? >> i don't know what they knew. but it looks very strange. i do not understand why they could not-- i guess, i hope we'll find out why they-- why it wasn't a scenario in which they said, "

of the election, our chief rrshington correspondent bob schieffer asked the president's top political advisor, david hielrod, whether the white house knew about any of this before the election. >> did the white house -- did the president have any knowledge ny advanced word this was coming? >> my understanding is no. that general petraeus came in theer the election some time later in the week and tendered his resignation. the president accepted his wdgment that that was best. it certainly wasn't performance related. he has done an outstanding job in that role. >> pelley: you can see the rest of the interview with axelrod on "face the nation" with bob schieffer this sunday. petraeus turns 60 two days ago. after west point, he rose to the top combat commands in the army. in 2003, he led the 101st airborne in the advance on baghdad. he rewrote the blueprint for afghanistan, the military's counterinsurgency doctrine, emphasizing the protection of the civilian population from violence. in 2007, president bush ordered him to take command in iraq and in 2010 president obama put him in charge in afgha
because only 2% of the vote has been counted. bob schieffer, the other state that has just closed, the state of ohio is critical to mitt romney's hopes for winning the white house. >> absolutely. i mean, his people told me last week, yes, we could win if we lost ohio, but i think it would be a very tall hill to climb if that happened. i mean, and the only thing that we have said through this campaign season more than it's coming out to turnout, no republican has won the presidency unless they won ohio. 18 electoral votes up there. if you say that president obama starts tonight or we think he has 237 electoral votes for sure and he'll probably get in nevada which is six votes, that brings him to 243 votes. if he picked up ohio, then he would have, i think, 261 votes. he would need only nine more votes to climb the presidency. ohio is always important, especially to republicans, i'd say, this year more important than ever. >> we've been talking to voters in all states as they've left the polls today. anthony mason is in the exiting poll information. what did the voters in ohio say?

schieffer is with us now live. bob, in all the complaining about this fbi investigation and whether or not they told congress about the petraeus situation soon enough, is there just the tiniest little hint in there, that this scandal, if it had come out sooner, might have affected the election? >> i don't really think it would be, quite frankly, because i don't think it had much to do with what the campaign was all about. this campaign was about the economy, about jobs. it was about a lot of things and i do not think that the head of the cia resigning would have made all that much difference. i may be totally wrong about that, but i just don't think it would have. >> i think you're probably right. let's talk about the fiscal cliff, because i'm trying to figure out just how much compromise is actually on the table, because despite accommodating rhetoric, both sides seem to be digging in they're heels, not too far away from where they were last year. >> i think that's exactly right, derek. i think what you saw is both sides, there has to be a beginning. you have to lay out your openin

. in the third debate, mitt romney did not bring up benghazi. why? he was given an opportunity by bon schieffer. he had just gotten a classified briefing from the cia that told him what everybody who has got from in the glassified briefing knows that it was the cia's fault they department get information faster on what happened in benghazi. it was not at all susan rice's fault. >> the president said today the congress had the same information that susan rice had but john mccain was out there blabbing thorn saying she should have known better. as federal budget she doesn't have good enough to be in is that for this system and really it's discouraging for senator mccain who in the past i think has had wide respect on boothe both sides of the i'll it ton is to he was running against a wing er so the only reason he's doing this is out of personal weak or some other cranky motive and he just needs to give it up and lindsey graham needs to give it up, too. they need to suck it up and start to work across the aisle like they have in the past and show some basic respect for the president of the united

provided, and i think that's why governor romney dropped this issue in the final debate. bob schieffer's first question was about libya, and he wanted nothing to do with it. why? he was getting the same briefings she was. >> speaking of ambassador rice, let me bring you in. maureen dowd is coming down on susan rice. >> she wanted to prove she had the gravitas for the job and help out the white house. she was focused on the pevens, not the content said one administration official. that's a quote in maureen's piece there. what do you make, again, of the focus on susan rice and what some perceive as a lack of focus on what former cia director david petraeus said or didn't say? i think peter king came out and gently worded it for peter king that the story was a bit different. >> well, i mean, i think you find a scapegoat here. she's front and center, but at the same time, i mean, there's all this incendiary talk about this, about ambassador rice, who is eminently qualified by the way. the senate did vote to confirm her four years ago. so we know that she's qualified. the question is, what'

about israel during the third presidential debate last month in florida. moderator bob schieffer asked the candidates would be "willing to declare an attack on israel is an attack on the united states." this is part of president obama's response. >> first of all, israel is a true friend, our greatest ally in the region. if israel is attacked, america will stand with them. i have made that clear throughout my presidency. we have already made that declaration. >> i will stand with israel if they are attacked. this is the reason why -- working with his role of critic the strongest military cooperation between our two countries in history. in fact, this week we will carry out the largest of the to exercise -- august military exercise with israel. that is this week. >> yousef munayyer, can you respond to what president obama said? >> he is describing his policy. he stood 1/2% by the israelis. i think the problem is, it shows a complete lack of strategy of how to move this forward, strategic thinking that echoed, by the way, in the israeli government. they're referring to what they're doing
